Since misery loves company I thought it would be great if we all could post here when we are having bad days due to morning sickness, crazing hormones, awful indigestion, back aches, etc.

I'll start:D

I threw up today due solely (I think) to all the acid that rises in my stomach no matter what I eat. I had just had plain pasta with a teensy bit of tomato sauce and five minutes later I was at the toilet:(.

The heartburn can be so painful and I think it had been rising since last night so throwing up did make me feel better but just for good measure I ate a small bag of doritos afterward. It might not be good for my stomach but it did improve my mood LOL.

My hair texture changed too. My "head hair" is wonderful, even thicker than usual and so smooth! But unfortunately that also means that the body hair got thicker too!! And that's not good news for a brunette!!!!!


Anyways, if your DH doesn't object, I would try to shave less, you are heading for winter after all!! :)

Hi Mari,


I'm sorry to hear about your low blood pressure troubles. I have had problems with this in the past, as well. One other suggestion I have, based on experience and what doctors have told me, is to ensure you are drinking plenty of fluids.

Marianna – A certain amount of shortness of breath is normal. Lethargy in your muscles could be something more. I’d talk to your Doc about it just to be safe. Ah, I see you did. Glad it’s a simple fix for now. Hopefully it won’t get any worse.
